NAME

       ppmtoyuvsplit - convert a PPM image to 3 subsampled raw YUV files



SYNOPSIS

       ppmtoyuvsplit basename [ppmfile]



DESCRIPTION

       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       ppmtoyuvsplit  reads  a PPM image as input.  Produces 3 raw files base-
       name.Y, basename.U and basename.V as output.

       The output files are the subsampled raw YUV representation of the input
       PPM  image,  as required by the Stanford MPEG codec.  The Y output file
       contains a byte for each pixel in the image, with the rows  going  from
       top to bottom and the columns within each row going left to right.  The
       U and V output files are arranged similarly, except that each byte rep-
       resents a square of 4 pixels of the image.  The value is the arithmetic
       mean of the value for each of those 4 pixels.  Hence, the Y file  is  4
       times the size of the U file or V file.

       The YUV values are scaled according to CCIR.601, as assumed by MPEG.
